Logic Puzzle Museum
You have never seen anything quite like the Logic Puzzle Museum. This unique experience rivals what most people think of as a museum as it is more than just looking at dusty photographs or mangy exhibits. Here, you get to interact with the displays. You and yours will have a good time trying to figure out their 60 puzzles, from logic to mechanical, at their hands-on stations. You can also bring a puzzle home with you. Explore the history of gaming as you look through puzzles from yesteryear, including Victorian parlor puzzles and Chinese checkerboards.
Adrian’s Frozen Custa
Come see what people drive miles out of their way for at Adrian’s Frozen Custard. This dessert restaurant is a local legend. The creamy custard that you find at Adrian’s is unlike anything you can get in the state. Enjoy their flavor of the day to broaden your sweet palate. Patrons love the vanilla chocolate twist cone, and cite that butter pecan is one of the best flavors available. You will love their turtle pecan or red raspberry sundae. Do not forget the hot fudge and rainbow sprinkles. The restaurant closes for the winter and only accepts cash.
